The Alhambra Palace in Granada, Andalusia

In the Spring of 2014 I had the pleasure once more to visit ’The Alhambra Palace’ in Granada, Andalusia.

Here are some images that I found captured the atmosphere of this special place.

Alhambra, the complete form of which was Calat Alhambra, is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It was originally constructed as a small fortress in 889 and then largely ignored until its ruins were renovated and rebuilt in the mid–11th century by the Moorish emir Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar of the Emirate of Granada, who built its current palace and walls.

It was converted into a royal palace in 1333 by Yusuf I, Sultan of Granada.

The palace fell into neglect during the !8th century,and early 19th century, it was declared a national monument in 1870, restoration and conservation has taken place since and is on going.

The adjoining ‘Generalife’ was used primarily as a place of rest and for the culture of Fruit and Vegetables.

Allow a day to visit and absorb the atmosphere.
